A Review by Jessica
I am (I am told), a
hypochondriac. My mother says that when I'm famous (which Chris
assures me is 'right around the corner') she'll have to describe my
childhood as "sickly", which I'm not looking forward to.
That being said, I have to say that I've tried almost every cold and flu
medicine on the market, so I feel qualified to pass judgement on Nyquil
I bought Nyquil Liquicaps because I love the effects of Nyquil but hate the
taste of both the red AND the green liquid. PLUS, no matter how hard
you try, there's always some sort of sticky residue left in the provided
plastic cup and the cap then gets sticky and the next time you have a cold
you start swearing, and eventually you just start drinking the Nyquil right

aftershock, the Liquicaps DO indeed clear your stuffy head, calm your aches
and coughing and allow you to rest. (I had no fever, so I can't speak
The positive effects of Nyquil Liquicaps are similar to those of the Liquid
formula. You get an amplified sense of touch and things sound very
far away. I was in my bed, half asleep with Wyatt Earp on the
television, licking my bottom lip and opening and closing my mouth for a
good twenty minutes, just because it felt good…and the next day, I couldn't
stop touching my eyebrows. Once, when I took liquid Nyquil, the phone
rang and I accidently joined the army, and I'm proud to report that did NOT
happen under the influence of the Liquicaps.
So, in conclusion, Liquicaps may not get you as HIGH as the standard Nyquil
Liquid, but it may keep you out of Kosovo.
